    Cutting excess carbon tubing

    What can I use to make a nice cut the excess carbon fork? Would a pipe cutter work on carbon?


    Thanks in advance.

    Do not use a pipe cutter. The compression force from a pipe cutter will mess up carbon big time. Use a fine hack saw blade (32tpi) . Tape the area you are cutting with masking tape to eliminate delamination. Ideally you would want to use a cutting guide to get a straight cut. Take it slow and easy. Once the tube is cut, apply epoxy or clear coat or nail polish to seal the end.
